As long as the water is not coming inside you don't have a problem. Some air conditioners don't drip.They have a slinger ring on the outside fan. This picks up the water and throws it through the condensor helping to cool it and evaporate it. If you have water inside prop up the inside part with a book or something It has to tilt slightly towards the back. The other problem is it could have a blocked internal drain. Take off the outside cabinet and look. There is usually some kink of chanel for the water to get from front to back.

Frigidaire model FFRE1033SI window airconditioner tilt problem.

Water going outside is the important part. The hole is not necessarily the drain, the angle at most is an eyesore!

Our window air unit is leaking into the house. It was purchased it earlier this summer and has worked fine until now. We don't see a drainage hole on the outside and the manual said nothing about a...

Two things can cause the problem you're having. Either separately or collectively.

1. The drain hole in the drip pan near the rear of the unit is clogged.
Sometimes finding the drain hole can be a challenge. As the clog will blend in with the hole. Patience & persistence is what is needed in locating it. A pipe cleaner works well to clear the clog.

2. The rear of the unit does not have enough downward tilt.
The general rule of thumb for rear downward tilt is 1/4' to 1/2". This allows the water to flow to the rear of the drain pan and thru the drain hole. Rather than into the house.

Hope this helps you & thanks for choosing FixYa..

Why is there no drain hole for condesation to drip out?

Some of the Friedrich units will drip out in the back of the unit. There may be just a small bend in the base of the unit allowing a certain amount of draining just behind the rear coil. Most units require some water to remain in the back of the unit to help cool the unit off. This is why tilting in the window is important. Be sure not to tilt it too much or too much water will drain, causing the unit to overheat. Be sure to tilt it enough to where the water can drain properly or the water may drain in the house, down the wall.

Hi Jennileefish,
It's possible that you may have purchased the wrong drain. A clawfoot or pedestal tub requires a different type drain that is curved to fit the slant of the tub.
There are many companies out there that sell these. I would contact the company where you purchased the tub and describe the problem. Having worked with this type tub I know there are specific drains required in many cases.
It's always possible that even if you purchased the tub and the drain at the same time from the same company there could have been a mix up in shipping or even a malformed part.
Most companies have a help line or live chat and will be happy to help you find out if the problem is a bad part or simply the wrong drain set up. I hope this helps you diagnose the problem.

Schematic for Zenith SF 120 console/Chassis 3B31 and 9B22

This model is old enough to not be available electronically. Your best bet is to locate a Sams Photofact copy of the manual. Check your local library as many carried these. Otherwise, check the web for Sams. These are usually available for purchase for less than $15.

How do I hook up washer drain pipe?

You'll need to seek the advice of a home repair or appliance repair - as your description of your connectors is vague.

They likely have the appropriate adapters.
